Intrawest, the owners of Canada’s two most popular resorts – Whistler on the West Coast and Tremblant on the East, and formerly 10 other resorts in North America and Europe, has sold another, Mountain Creek in New Jersey.

The resort is the only ski area within one hour of New York City and is in the same state that has built, but not yet opened, North America’s first indoor snow centre.

Intrawest still fully or partially owns or operates seven major ski areas. Besides Whistler and Tremblant these include Stratton in Vermont, Snowshoe in West Virginia, Squaw Valley in California, Steamboat and Copper Mountain in Colorado, and Blue Mountain in Ontario.
